Karlovic commenced his football career at Adelaide City Force signing for the NSL club as a 15-year-old in 2000. During his time at the club he represented the Australian Joeys in the Under 17 World Cup Qualifiers.
He was sold to Serie B club A.S. Cittadella in 2002 after also receiving interest from AC Milan. Karlović was unable to fulfill an invitation from the Italian giants due to a foot injury. He has spent the majority of his football career playing in Italy. He previously played for A.S.
